Love my Treo, had Treos for over 5 years. I am very disapointed that I Verizon does not offer the Treo anymore that sinx up to the PC so I can dowload my e mail addresss, phone number and addresss. I do not need to pay $30.00 just so I can have a the balckberry or droid so that I can dowload the phone numbers and calendar. The last Treo I bought I had the option of not getting the $30.00 a month internet access. Now that I want another phone, I have to pay the $30.00 just to get the one feature I want. I am dissapointed in Verizon that they cannot offer a phone like a Treo without the$30.00 a month charge. That is were you ripe off the customer. I will pay the $10.00 a month to access the web but not the $30.00. I am keepin my treo since I am grandgather in until it dies. Then I hopefully will find a palm phone without the $30.00 charger. I will keep looking. Maybe if enough customesr get tired of paying the $30.00 cost that do not need all the internet options and demand basic smart phone options, Verizon may listen.
No carrier sells new Treo's because Palm canceled the Treo line and went to the Pixi and Pre lines w/WebOS. The reason the data plans are in place is because phones now can do OTA download of upgraded Operating Systems, which if you have an Android phone is a must (no way to download it to your computer).
